      I've always liked the MK2 Golf GTI. I had a 1989 and still miss it.
      Looks good take good care of her.

      Sorry, but when or if it ever goes up for sale I was promised the first right of refusal.

      Very nice, Jason - glad to see you getting your props.

      Though bpd did do a great deal of the work, it's important to note that as far cleanliness, attention to detail, and an overall level of "correctness" is concerned, Jason has taken this car to a whole other level.

      Yes, this job took longer than anyone expected/wanted, but we couldn't have asked for a more understanding and motivated customer. Seriously.

      OK, I often wonder this when I see cars that are just sooooo nice--

      Does your VW actually have periods when everything works , so that you can keep upgrading?

      Because my upgrade budget constantly keeps turning into a repair bill!!

      Awesome car, cheers!

      Thanks for the everyone.

      Here's a more recent shot, as my submission to A/B was a little dated.

      Some detail work on the engine bay from last weekend:

      Beautiful car. Looks in excellent shape, as well as very tasteful mods.
      I also happen to have a '92 GTI 16v , same color and pretty much stock. Although not as clean as yours(maybe someday).
      Here's some pics.
